Church and Home – August 28

They are here every Sunday. They are present for every worship service in TMUC’s sanctuary. They are so familiar they might go unnoticed.

Midweek Musings – July 27

During the time of COVID ‘shutdowns’, we daily phoned people of TMUC to ask how they were doing and let them know we were thinking of them. A recurrent question we heard during those calls was, “How are things with the church?” As we return to weekly in-person worship and events, we continue to both…
